Manufacturer Description

The Type A Machines series 1 2014 3D printer comes fully assembled, has an open frame and fabricates objects using PLA (polylactic acid) thermoplastic filament (sold separately), with a vertical resolution from 50 to 300 microns (0.05 to 0.3 mm). The printer can build objects to maximum dimensions of 12 x 12 x 12 inches/305 x 305 x 305 mm (H x W x D). The solid aluminum extruder drive feeds 1.75mm PLA filament, with a lever system for changing filament. A filament management system holds multiple filament spools and helps provide reliable feeding of filament into the extruder. The build surface adjusts at four corners for level calibration. The printer can be commanded through the integrated USB cable, or through a Wi-Fi connection using G-code numerical control instructions. It can be used with 3D printer management software packages (sold separately). The frame is laser cut and made of CNC folded metal. Chrome-plated precision ground steel rods with precision linear bearings help ensure precise movement. The size 17 and size 14 stepper motors are 1/32 micro stepping, and meet the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) standard ICS 16-2001.

*H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.

3D printers fabricate physical objects directly from computer-aided-design (CAD) data sources. Objects created by additive manufacturing are built by dispensing successive thin layers of molten material onto a moving platform base from a robotic extruder nozzle. The material is most commonly a thermoplastic or HDPE (high-density polyethylene) filament.

Type A Machines manufactures 3D printers and accessories. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, CA.
